Islam and Prejudice (Massoud Malek, USA, 03/14/15 3:40 pm)

Happy Birthday to John E! [Thank you, Massoud, and thanks to the dozen or so other WAISers who have written today--JE]

When I joined WAIS, I never expected that my faith, my culture, and my way of life would be considered the most disgusting faith, culture, and way of life on the planet. Now I realize that as a wild-eyed enraged bull, I could open the road to Armageddon. I am told that I was born for only one purpose. To annihilate over six billion people.

On 11 March, Anthony J Candil, who is uneasy about Islam because it threatens his way of life, wrote:

"Because Islam, no matter what Massoud says about the wonderful society in Iran, does not accept others. They tolerate others as long as they have to, but when the moment should arrive they will annihilate those others. It is written so; is it not? Is there anything more racist than this?"

Isn't the above statement extremely prejudicial toward Muslims? Anthony calls the entire Muslim population in the world racist and intolerant! He tells us that it is a fact that Muslims want to annihilate others!

[AC]: "Why does the Iranian regime want the bomb? Maybe to set up new course too, hence the threats against Israel."

Soon after its founding in 1948, Israel with French support secretly began building a nuclear reactor and reprocessing plant in the late 1950s in Dimona. Israel is alleged to have built its first nuclear weapon in December 1966. In 1986, Mordechai Vanunu, a former Israeli nuclear technician, provided explicit details and photographs to the Sunday Times of a nuclear weapons program in which he had been employed for nine years, "including equipment for extracting radioactive material for arms production and laboratory models of thermonuclear devices." It should be noted that the Israelis are developing the kind of codes which will enable them to make hydrogen bombs." Estimates as to the size of the Israeli nuclear arsenal vary between 75 and 400 nuclear warheads.

The Stockholm International Peace Research Institute estimates that Israel has approximately 80 intact nuclear weapons, of which 50 are for delivery by Jericho II medium-range ballistic missiles and 30 are gravity bombs for delivery by aircraft.

Does Anthony really believe that Iran is working on a nuclear bomb to annihilate Israel? I guess Israel obtained its nuclear weapons just to spread peace on Earth.

[AC]: "Israel is the sole representative of Western civilization in the Middle East. That's why its enemies want to destroy it."

Israel is not the sole representative of Western civilization in the Middle East. It is actually violating all the principles of Western civilization. What Israelis are doing to Palestinians is far from the teachings of Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle.

Since the inception of Israel, Palestinian people became their slaves. Contrary to the Jews of Egypt, Palestinians could not cross the Red Sea to free themselves from the Israeli chains. Palestine is their homeland. They are not occupying their own land.

[AC]: "It is true what Vincent Littrell says, they [Muslims] prosecute not only Christians but every faith on earth that is not theirs."

The Baha'i faith is rooted in Persian Shi'ism and philosophy. Many of the institutions of Shi'ism were carried forward into the Baha'i faith.

On 12 March, Luciano Dondero brought to WAISers' attention an article by Daniel Pipes, someone who feels the same way about Muslims as Anthony does.

Pipes made it his life's work to convince the Western world that there can be no bargaining with Muslims. As a major proponent of the Iraq invasion, he said:

"I think contrary to the deposing of the Taliban regime with few implications, the deposition of Saddam Hussein will have vast implications on every sort of level. On militant Islam, the energy market, the Israeli conflict, the general problem of the Arab states modernizing, you name it, it'll be a large event."

According to the Council on American-Islamic Relations, Pipes "has exhibited a troubling bigotry toward Muslims and Islam" and possesses a "history of hostility toward Muslims in general and to the American Muslim community in particular." In response, Pipes told Salon: "David Duke looks nice, presents himself well, but as soon as he opens his mouth, you see he's a wild-eyed maniac. Well, so are these people."

[AC]: "It is truly the clash of civilizations that Samuel Huntington was speaking about."

Daniel Pipes: "The idea of the Muslims as the outstanding threat to Western civilization is not entirely new. As early as 1984, Leon Uris explained that his purpose in writing The Haj, a novel, 'was to warn the West and Western democracies that you can't keep your head in the sand about this situation any longer, that we have an enraged bull of a billion people on our planet, and tilted the wrong way they could open the second road to Armageddon.'"

http://www.danielpipes.org/198/the-muslims-are-coming-the-muslims-are-coming

[AC]: "I think there are now about 8 million Muslim people in the United States and maybe this is going to be a problem for all. Not because of 'race;' no. It's just because they embrace a different culture, a different way of life, a different justice, and so on."

Muslims place a high value on education; many are highly educated with Master's degrees and PhDs; and many Muslims speak multiple languages. Forty percent of American Muslims hold a college degree; they're the second most educated group after Jews.

In 1990, Pipes wrote in the National Review that given European attitudes they "are unprepared for the massive immigration of brown-skinned peoples cooking strange foods and maintaining different standards of hygiene ... Should Muslims fail to modernize, their stubborn record of illiteracy, poverty, intolerance, and autocracy will continue, and perhaps worsen."

Muslims must wash their face, head, arms, and feet, five times a day. Soon after a sexual act, Muslims must wash their entire body. Fourteen centuries ago, Muhammad told his followers to brush their teeth daily.

JE comments:  Re:  Pipes's prediction about the 2003 invasion of Iraq:  "It'll be a large event."  He got that right.
